I stuck in my thumb and pulled out - a snake. Just a little bitty snake.

Addendum: I just realized I haven't been giving much information in my posts of late. Blame it on my oh, sooooo slow, connection. (At 14.4 it takes forever just to load a picture.)
The ringneck is a small, slender snake. Most guides will give it's max length as 20 inches. This particular snake was about 12-13 inches. Ringnecks are mostly active at night and they eat earthworms, small salamanders, frogs, and lizards. I have never had one attempt to bite, but every single one I have ever handled has discharged some pretty smelly musk from its anal glands.
